THE FAKMEHS' ALLIANCE, LINCOLN, NEIL, THURSDAY, AUGUST 27, 1891.
Delivered by Hon. D. McCall at Calamus,
Valley County, July 4th, iftgi.
Concluded from last week.
Slavery wag hardly for the purpose of
"esublishinir Justice!" It couia noi oe
to cromote the eeneral welfare! It cer
tainly wa not to secure the blessings of
liberty! it was not in me jurtnerance
of the principles that "all men are ere
cted equal." It did not endorse the
theory thai all men were equally en
dowed by their Creator with the right
to "pursue life, liberty and happiness."
No, it was uttering the truth in the
Declaration of Independence and viola
tin? it in the every day life and busi
ness of great numbers of citizens. The
truths of the Declaration are not tem
, porary expedients but eternal truths.
They are inalienable and undying.
There was an excuse for slavery. Cheap
labor was much needed to subdue the
earth and make it blossom as the rose.
But it is never safe to violate the laws
of God and te trample under foot the
rights and liberties of man. The day of
retribution will come. The debt must
be paid, principal and interest, in tears
Did it ever occur to you that Jeffer
Ron was a kicker. That he enunciated
the principles of the Declaration in a
few ample sentences and then promptly
showed wherein the rule over them vio
lated those principles. As a signilicant
sample he said, "lie has refused his as
sent to laws the most wholesome and
necessary to the public good; he has
plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts,
burnt our to ass and destroyed the lives
of our people."
It i the Opinion of some that only our
great achievements are to be named on
this the anniversary of our indepen
dence. My own opinion is that wjs
should show our fealty to the principles
of the declaration. It is true there is
ample material for the brief talk that
we shall make in the military and civic
achievenatnts of this country. Take
the revolutionary war, what valor and
patriotism were exhibited, what sacri
fices, what devotion, what enduring
courage. Take the campaign of Bur
goyne. More that 10,000 men well
equipped were sent against Gen. Schuy
ler's little army. Crown Point and Ti
condoraga were taken and all seemed
well to tne enemy. But two small en
gagements were disasterous to the En
glishthen came the battle at or near
Saratoga, and Burgoyno and his armies
trere prisoners. Freedom dawned.
The English were disheartened.
The God of heaven who is the friend
of the widow and orphan; who hears the
cry of the downtrodden and oppressed,
had held the grandest continent in re
serve for 5,500 years, evidently to
permit a nation to be founded where
the right of "life, liberty and the pur
suit 01 happiness" should be implanted
in the organic law and allowed every
where. The struggle of the revolution
continued but finally Cornwallis sur
rendered. Shall we recount the achievniects of
revolution of 1813, of the Indian wars,
of the Mexican war? There are records
to enlist the pride of every American.
Shall we recount the success of the in
ventive genius of eur people. In it are
the greatest successes kaown to the
world, either in mechanical skill, in sci
ence, in literature, in art or in mili
tary achievement. What of electricity,
of steam, of agricultural implements,
and of invention.
We have subdued a continent, cov
ered it with cities, grVdlroned it with
railroads, cobwebed it with telegraph
wires, and transformed it into homes
of the most intelligent, heroic and pat
riotic people on the globe. The mines
and forests have been transformed in
to things of beauty and utility. Even
the occult forces hare been harnessed
and do man's bidding. Fields abound
ing in abundant material, rich and
inviting, open everywhere. But we
are invited to -consider some of these
things wherein we may have drifted
from the safe moorings established by
Jefferson and the compatriots of 1776.
We have asserted that Jefferson was a
kicker. If we ourselves have become
parties to error, shall we fall to consid
er and correct? Shall we not strive to
hold fast to that which is good?
During all great wars money is care
ful. Whenever the nation's life is im
periled gold and silver are cowards and
hide away. Governments are forced to
find other and more patriotic money.
In 1801 specie payment was suspended.
State banks asked an exorbitant rate cf
interest for their so called money.
Lincoln said wc will use the credit of
all the people. Sixty millions of treas
ury notes, known as demand notes,
were issued and served the purpose of
money as well as gold. Shylock was
alarmed. He knew that if the govern
ment was to utilize the credit of all the
people in stead of paying tribute to
Shylock for a -credit less ample that
T,rosperity would visit the masses and
the classes would have their profits
under special privileges somewhat
abated. When the house of represen
tatives had matured and passed a bill
to issue one hundred and fifty millions
of treasury notes upon the credit of all
foi the benefit of all, Syhlock by intrigue
and importunity caused the senate to
make exceptions and to say by such ex
ceptions, "here is a crippled money,
good enough for the patriotic and hero
ic soldier, good -enough for farmer,
merchant, railroad business, miners,
manufacturers, all commerce, all busi
ness except Shylock and government
impost duties which are for Shylock.
Why was money enlisted in the war
any better than noble patriotic human
lives enlisted in the war? Is money
better than flesh and blood? Was this
exception in accord with equal and ex
act justice to all, and special privileges
to none? My comrades will remember
Gen. Scott's order that this money
should be as good as eoin and was more
convenient to send home to the fami
lies of soldiers. We took it cheerfully
and without a murmur. But Shylock
had destroyed half the value of our
money by inducing the senate to ap
pend the exception clause. Then again
in 18G3, Shylock,unmindful of the Decla
ration of Independence, wanted more
special privileges. A national banking
law enabling him to get money at one
per cent and loan it to the people at
ten per cent. Tb.6 special privilege was
granted and its result is pauper and
millionaire, two conditions nienancing
to patriotism and the purity of republi
can government. But this "exception"
treasury note became greatly depreci
ated. 8100,000 of gold would buy200,-
000 paper, and paper currency would
buy bonds dollar for dollar. Shylock
sa'd. "another special if you please,
Uncle Sam." Sam said, "what is it, nsy
favored son?" He said, "I bought hun
dreds of millions of bonds. One dollar
in gold bought two in bonds, but these
bonds may be paid in paper currency, I
please make them payable in coin and
1 will thereby double my money."!
John Sherman answering for Uncle j
Sam said, "we will do it and call it the
credit strengthening act.
Shylock was happy, and exclaimed,
"most noble John Sherman, how I hon
or your patriotism." By this act of
March 18, 1S69, many hundreds of mil
lions of government securities which by
the laws under which they werecon
trmcted were payable in currency,
the credit strengthening act .made
payable in coin, adding 23 cenU to the
value of each individual dollar of debt
or GOO.000,000 of value. All the land
west of the Mississippi river cost the
government 150,000,000, and congress
gave to Shylock twelve times this
amount in one gracious act of congress.
Is it not possible that they were too
liberal with the money of the tax ay
ers. And then said to Shylock, "we
will exempt you from paying taxes;
these old soldiers are brave, heroic
and energetic; wc will exempt you and
double up the taxes on them; if they
complain we will cry disloyalty and
thev will be easilv silenced." Shvlock
said, "most noble government."
Shylock said, "another special is
needed; there is too much money; the
people are too prosperous; reduce the
circulating medium two-thirds." It
was done from 1866 to 1873. Shvlock
said, "these specials will make all my
people millionaires. It is mining by
indirection. The small business farms
are rapidly failing. My people absorb
all they lose. What a glorious govern
ment." "Coin payment is greatly to our ad
vantage, can we not induce congress to
change the unit of value from silver to
gold?" It was done in 1873. "Can we
not demonetize silver and leave only
gold a legal tender coin?" It wasdone
in 18.4. jay (Jooke tailed, xnen fail
ures were common. Shylock had laid
the plans and took the plums. Shvlock
in Europe and Shylock in America had
induced congress to grant these "speci
al" favors, and the masses, true, brave,
loyal, industrious, frugal, were put up
on the road to the poor house. 9,000,-
000 mortgaged homes are found in our
lair lana on this year 1891. They were
largely placed there by special privi
leges to Shylock. An exception clause
was put into the law that provided the
money that made the exchanges of this
country from 1861 to 1889. National
banks were granted a monopoly of the
government sovereign right "to coin
money ana regulate trie value tnereoi.
One-kalf of the coin money was shorn
of its authority to cancel debt. $1,200,
000,000 of currency was in eight years
withdrawn from circulation, limes
were made hard by special legislation
in the interest of Shylock.
We go back to the foundation princi
ples of "equal and exact justice to all
and special privileges to none." We
demand that the general welfare shall
be regarded and maintained. We
claim that securing the blessings of
liberty to curselves and our posterity
is not subserved in this special class
legislation. We claim that there was
an injustice in paying soldiers in money
of half the value of the solemn contract
made with him, and paying Shylock in
money of double the value of the con
tract money. Flesh and blood is above
dross. The soldier is better than Shy-
lock's money. The citizen is above the
The soldiers In the union army dur
ing the late war knew the value of free
dom and liberty; they knew our history;
they understood the grandeur, magnifi
cence and superlative worth of our in
stitutions, and were the most intelli
gent, noble, patriotic, valorous and he
roic soldiery that ever kept step to mnr
tial music neath the shining sun, and
they with othere must now bear a
double "burden because of shylock'
special privileges. Nor do the wrongs
under which we suffer stop with nation
al legislation. The state is run largely
in the interest of corporations and com
bines. The mention of transportation
will suffice. Our freight rates are
known to be excessive. Last year the
people made an heroic effort to get the
state on an equality with Iewa. The
Union Pacific had received an empire
of land and 564,000,000 in money from
tne general government and had the
best natural route on the continent.
The B. & M. were greatly favored.
Well, the Newberry bill passed both
houses, but boodle and boodlers de
feated it. Boyd claimed that business
of the railroad was so small this year
that the law would ruin the roads.
What is the fact? The law coming In
to operation Aug. 1st, would be just in
time to handle Nebraska's immense
crop of 1891. The railroads would
have been all right and the people
could have reduced their debt. But the
corporations still ruie and the people

Shylock is iu power ' and the people
in bondage, p,nd Shylock still wants his
pound of flesh and is bound to have it.
Daniel Webster said, "liberty cannot
long endure in any country when the
tenoenev ef legislation is to concentrate
wealth into the hands of a few." Shall
we not arouse to the dangers that
threaten our homes, our liberty and
the perpetuity of the government of our
beloved country? There are other mat
ters of which we would like to talk but
we must soon close. We ask your care
ful attention to some short articles we
will read: One is a letter of Edward
llosewater's, "What is the path of salva
tion?" Another a response to the same
by Ex-attornoy Gen. Leese. The hon
est dollar" is the third, and "Justice not
charity" by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, and
last a song "Feedom's land"
In conclusioc.to my comrades I would
say, our time is fast passing away and
when our d.m eyes catch the last
glimpse on earth may it be the cross of
the Prince of Feace, and just beneath
the Stars and Stripes.

Tho regions most favorable for tht
occurrence of tornadoes are tho Mis
sissippi, Missouri and Ohio valleys,
and the Gulf and South Atlantic
states. Tornadoes are confined al
most entirely to the summer season,
the months of greatest frequency being-April,
May, June and July. Tho
month of greatest frequency is May.
It may bo generally stated that torna
does do not occur in tho United States
west of the one-hundredth meridian.
This storm is practically unknown In
California. The tornado invariably
assumes tho form of a funnel-shaped
cloud, the smaller end drawing near

An engine bumped against some
empty cars in the early dawn of a
winter morning. A boy who had been
Asleep n one of theni was thrown,
dazed and bewildered, against the
door, which he had pulled to when he
crawled into the car the night be
fore. Just then a brakeman thrust his
head into t.be car, and reached for his
jacket, which he supposed was hang
ing where he had left it. He was some
what surprised to find a boy on it,
and took it from him without cere
mony. "Now get, out of here!" he said,
thrusting the boy from the door. "If I
catch you in one of these cars again,
I'll give you to a policeman!"
"What's he been up to, Bill?" said a
man who was putting freight into the
"Up to my coat," he said giving it a
vigorous shake as he walked off.
The boy looked dirty and dejected,

track. The man who had spoken
called after hinn
"Hullo, there! Dd you want a job!"
The boy turned back quickly.
"If Vou'll heln me to load them firk
ins, I'll pay you for it; but you'll have
to work spry."
The nrosnect of a little money
brightened the boy, and he set to work
in earnest, though he was etili and
cramped and hungry.
"Do you live round here; asked tne
The boy shook his head.
"In case we should want to hire a
boy about your size, can you give nie
any recommendations as to your
The boy's face flushed, but he made
no answer. The man watched him
narrowly, and when the car was load
ed, handed him twenty-five cents, say
ing: "We're short of hands in the
freight-room. Do you think you'd
like the job?"
"Yes, I would like it." The boy's
face was almost painful in its eager
ness as he followed the man into the
"Now," said the freight-man, seat
ing himself on a box, "we'll have a bit
of talk before we get to business. I
don't know anything about you, ex
cept that you are cold and hungry;
you look that. But I think it is likely
that you've got into some scrape, for
if you hadn't, you wouldn't be loafing
about stations and sleeping in freight
cars. I'm not going to ask you if you
have done anything wrong, but I am
going to ask if you've got a mother."
"No; she's dead."
"Got any father or folks that be
long to you?"
"I've an uncle and some cousins."
"Well, now, if you had a mother,
I'd send you to her in no time, for
there is nothing that a mother won't
forgive; but uncles and cousins are dif
ferent. "If I recommend you at the office,
they'll take you but mind, if I do it,
I'm going to watch you as a cat does
a mouse. You'll have to spend your
evenings and Sundays with me.
"I went wrong myself when I was no
older than you are," lowering his
voice. An' if it hadn't been for my
mother Well, t hat was a long time
ago. You've got switched upon the
wrong track I am very sure, and as
you haven't any mother to help you
get on the right one, God helpin' me,
I'll do it, if you'll let me.
Preachin' isn't in my line, but
there's iust one thing you don't want
to forget, and that is the good father is
giving you a chance now to get back
where you can do right and feel right
Are you going to take it?"
The boy answered faintly that he
would try. He was taken into the
freight-yard, and was under his new
friend's eye constantly and it was not
long before the man had so won his
confidence that he told him his story.
There was trouble and dishonesty
connected with it, but for two years
the lad proved himself faithful and
trustworthy in his new occupation.
Ho was then advanced to a more re
sponsible position, but there was
something almost pathetic in his de
votion to the man who had befriend
ed him, and in his respect for the re
ligion he professed.
Here was practical Christianity,
worthy any man's emulation.-Youth's
After the death of the great Prus
sian, General von Moltke, some of the
Berlin newspapers published the fol
lowing anecdote of him: When a very
young man, holding the humble posi
tion of second lieutenant in the ban
ish army, he wrote a. letter of resigna
tion to the King himself, full of pom
pous self-conceit. The King accepted
Iiis resignation, briefly adding that the
Danish arm' would try to get on as
best it could without Lieutenant von
Moltke. The young soldier, who had
been unconscious of his vanity, was
deeply mortified. "You talked too
much, Moltke," a comrade said to
him. "I shall talk no more," he stern
ly replied. His reticence therefore
was so great that in his old age he was.
known throughout Germany as the
Silent One. Since his death a promi
nent clergyman in Pennsylvania has
given an account of a visit which he
made to the scene of the decisive bat
tle in the Austro-Prussian war. He
found there a group of German officers,
one of whom, in a carriage, was driv
en at a Rnail's pace into every part of
the field. A box beside him was filled
with maps, with which he studied
each minute detail of the battle, fight
ing it over again moment by moment.
It was Moltke with his staff. The pains
taking accuracy which brought him
back after years had passed, to study
again his own mistakes and successes,
made him the great master of the art
of war of his century, while his dumb
self-control gave him prestige in the
eyes of the masses, who in Germany,
as elsewhere, are apt to believe that
silence means strength. We live in a
voluble age, when almost every intel
ligent man has a pet theory or pursuit
to which he wishes to convert his
neighbors. The able man who knows
how to hold his tongue in even one
language will probably be credited
with more wisdom than if he could
maintain his opinion with clearness
"The easiet thing for a great man
to do," said John Randolph, "ia to
mitke a pv h; tho moat ilillicult to
act right and keep nilcnt."
If any young reader wraps liinielf
in reserve, and becomes reticent and
cold among his fellow in order to
gain resjKvt, he must remember that
Moltke, dumb without his ten langu
ages, his accuracy and mastery of
strategy, would have remained a sub
lieutenant nil of his life.
An old Spanish proverb says, "None
speak better than the ant, who says
nothing and works."
The luxuriant groves of cocoa palm
which clothe the seaboard of the
southern shores of Ceylon are in the
hot, dry provinces of the north-east
in a great measure replaced by an in
calculable multitude of Palmyra
palms, which form a belt of dark
green all along the coast, flourishing
even on the brink of the salt coral
sand, where at high tide the blue wa
ters bathe the roots of their sturdy
black stems, which stand like regi
ments of well drilled soldiers, fault
lessly upright and unbendingly stiff.
The Palmyra palm does not begin
bearing fruit till it is upwards often
years of age, but a comparatively
small number of the trees are allowed
to develop their crop of beautiful
nuts, the majority being tortured in
to yielding only their luscious sap,
which, when allowed to ferment, be
come slightly intoxicating, and is
known as toddy doubtless so named
by some early Scotch planter, in re
membrance of the whisky toddy of
the north. By exposure to the sun,
the toddy becomes vinegar, or if
sugar is required, a little lime is mixed
with the sap, which is then boiled
down to thick syrup and poured into
baskets made from the Palmyra
leaf, and allowed to harded. Iu this
state it sold as jaggery sugar.
In order to obtain the sap the tod
dy drawers, who are marvellously ex
pert climbers, ascend to tho crown of
leaves, beneath which, each cradled in
a solid sheath of "spathe," are the
bunches of ivory-like blossoms bear
ing the embryo nuts. These are
ruthlessly bruised and cut out several
successive days, to facilitate the How of
sap, and each spathe is tightly bound
to prevent its expansion.
The work of the toddy drawer is no
sinecure, for though by the aid of a loop
of flexible vine passed round his ancles,
so as to enable him to grasp the trunk
ct the tree with his singularly prehen
sible feet, he contrives to climb
with monkey-like agility, one man
can scarcely manage to ascend
more than twenty trees every
morning; so to lessen the climbing,
and yet enable each man to work a
hundred trees daily, half-a-dozen palm
tops are connected by ropes, along
which the drawer passes from tree to
tree. Sometimes, for security, a wec
cond set of ropes is added some feet
higher up; but even with these it is a
work of danger, a considerable num
ber of deaths, and of horrible acci
dents, resulting from this practice be
sides the fatalities recorded.
In the annual reports of deaths
from accidents, a considerable num
ber are shown to be caused by falling
from trees; I have this list for 1879,
1883, and 1887, and I see the deaths
under this head are respectively, 225,
250, and 520, and the majority of the
victims were toddy drawers, who fc
some cases lost their hold on the
slender coir rope while collecting the
sap, but more often perish from its
breaking as they pass from one high
tree top to another, Sometimes the
ropes are rotten, sometimes they are
injured by rats; and in some cases
there has been reason to suspect an
enemy of hulf cutting the rope.
The men engaged in this work are
of a very low caste, and in too many
cases their hardly-earned wages re
turn to the toddy merchant. There
are, however, some brilliant except
ions, notably a villiage near Battica
loa, whose whole population have for
20 years proved staunch Christians,
notwithstanding an amount of perse
cutions from neighboring villagers of
higher caste, which one would fain
have deemed impossible in an island
under British rule. C, F. Gordon
Cummings, in the Sun Magazine.
